I have a William Kudrna in my familytree. Here is my William's father's Obit:
FROM OBITUARY:Mike Kudrna was born in Checoslovakia Prilla in 1846. There he grew to manhood's _estate and was married, two sons, William and Joseph being born to this union.On coming to America he settled on a farm 7 miles north and 1 mile west of Red Cloud, which was his home until he passed away February 18, 1925. His first wife died and in 1880 he was married to Dora Herdina.To this union 8 children were born, two, Louis and Marie preceeding the father to the great beyond.The children still living are, William, Joseph, Frank, Emma, Edward, Anton, Lizzie and Albie.Besides the children he leaves his wife, fourteen grandchildren and a brother, Joseph.At the time of his death he was 78 years, 10 months and 7 days. Funeral services were conducted from the home at 2:00 o'clock, Friday, February 20th, by Rev. H. E. Tweedy of the Congregational church, music being furnished by Mrs. H. E. Tweedy and Miss Edna Henderson.The sons and sons-in-law acted as pallbearers.The very large concourse of people who assembled at the last rites and the beautiful flowers attest to the esteem in which Mr. Kudrna was held.
(It's been awhile since I worked on this family, so will need to get my files out and see what I have. I know I don't have William's mother's name. Alice)
